EXCLUSIVE: Two females and a male have this evening (Thursday) been arrested after the car they were travelling in was cornered by Police at a cul-de-sac in Sandown.
Officers from Hampshire Constabulary were tonight searching for a J-reg Silver Honda Civic in the Ryde area, which was witnessed to be shouting foul language and driving erratically.
Initial reports suggest the vehicle to be stolen.
Shortly before 21:00, witnesses described how up to 8 police vehicles pursued the Honda car into Drabbles Lane, a no-through road off of The Broadway, Sandown, before the occupants were arrested as the vehicle mounted a small grassed area.
Residents turned out onto the streets to the drama that unfolded on their doorsteps.
The incident was quickly resolved and recovery was arranged for the vehicle. The three persons arrested have been taken to Newport Police Station for questioning.
EARLIER in the evening, fire crews and Police were called to Yaverland Car Park on the outskirts of Sandown to a small hedge fire.
